Happy Saturday! Today’s spotlight is a gymnastics legend. Depending on how long you’ve been involved in the sport or how many crazy videos you watch on YouTube, you may be familiar with gymnastics comedian Paul Hunt, a.k.a “Paulette Huntesque.” Hunt has performed all over the world and toured with many superstars of gymnastics, such as, Olga Korbut, Nadia Comeneci, Mary Lou Retton, Kim Zmeskal, Shannon Miller and many others. Unfortunately, Paulette is no longer entertaining gymnastics fans in person. Hunt has officially retired his leotard. Fortunately, thanks to YouTube we can share this humorous piece of gymnastics history with future generations.
I am pleased to share that Paul Hunt is still involved with the sport of gymnastics as the owner and coach of Hunt’s Gymnastics. Over the past several years I’ve enjoyed seeing parents from Hunt’s pay tribute to their coach’s historic talent by wearing yellow smiley face shirts to competitions.

Enjoy some wholesome family entertainment – gymnastics style!
